>And what does the Koran add to Judaism and Christianity?

Quite a few. To begin with it adds Arab Imperialism . It adds inferior status to different ethnicities who become Muslims. For example, in Pakistan the official hsitory is that, only after the islamic conquest by brute force one might add, Pakistanis are in "light" and before that they were in "darkness". Koran adds Jihad i.e. religious war which it makes it into a central position.

Recently, it has added suicide as the highest islamic goal.
